March Focus on Wellness:  Healthy Sleep

 

How are you sleeping these days? Healthy sleep is a key factor in managing your overall physical and mental well-being. Healthy sleep supports you in making better food choices, achieving your fitness goals, increases your productivity and is necessary in managing stress. As a Johns Hopkins employee you have access to several free tools to help you manage your sleep. Use the self-administered sleep assessment tool on the myStrength app to learn more about your sleep habits and the Calm app to listen to sleep stories. Also join one of our upcoming sleep webinars below.  Make a goal for yourself during the National Sleep Foundation’s National Sleep Awareness Week ® March 14-20, to access these resources, read in-depth articles from Johns Hopkins Sleep Medicine   to support your journey to healthy sleep. March 14 is the start of Daylight Saving Time so this is an opportunity to be mindful of your sleep habits.

WEBINARS:

Manager Training on Sleep and Fatigue

As a manager have you had difficult conversations with staff who are too fatigued to execute work properly? Sleep deprivation can put employees, other staff and patients at risk of physical harm or lead to other critical errors in the workplace. Poor performance is not necessarily an indicator of an employee lack of interest or commitment, but can be a result of a variety of sleep concerns including insomnia, narcolepsy, obstructive sleep apnea, and restless legs syndrome conditions. Please join Dr. Susheel Patil, Clinical Director, Johns Hopkins Pulmonary Sleep Medicine Program to discuss ways managers can improve their understanding of the safety and health risks associated with poor sleep and their skills for organizing work to reduce the risk of employee fatigue.
